First, A Little About Us…

We believe young people change the world. So, we make it our mission to help them do this by teaching young people personal responsibility through meaningful work that connects us to the land, community, and one another.

Our model is built of a national conservation Corps model that links the core methods of learning, service to community, and paying jobs for young people. Each year we pay over 250 young people (ages 15-26) to do hands-on work in farming and conservation projects via our small crews across the state of Vermont. These amazing experiences help develop each Corps Member’s leadership, teamwork, understanding and embrace of inclusion and equity, and larger professional skills.

We are unified in our vision of being #OneCorpsAllCorps, which unites our 6,000+ alumni, supporters, project partners, and amazing staff as one big team who are making Vermont a great place to live, work, and explore.

Sound like a place you want to work? Awesome! We have periodic openings for full-time or seasonal staff positions at our headquarters in Richmond, VT. All open positions are located further down this page.
